Support our residents
Councillor Aniket Patel, Cabinet Member for Wellbeing and Community said:
The increase in energy bills for many households is resulting in people feeling extra pressure to heat their homes this winter. I’m pleased that Warm Places are being set up across the Epping Forest district area to support our residents during the colder months.
